Fall Fashion: Dress Yourself and Your Home in Stylish Finds From…

Target Project 62

I saw a new Target catalog sitting on my Mother-in-Law’s coffee table and couldn’t resist flipping through. In fact, I “read” it twice in a row, given my reaction to just about every page was, “Oh wow! That’s from Target?”

Project 62 is a collection described as: Modern pieces made for everyday living.

The products that made me go “Oh Wow!” linked below:

My favorites might be this tufted chair (comes in 4 colors, including navy blue!) and this wood chair. I just really like chairs, ok? These lamps are calling my name, too: Delavan Tripod Floor Lamp – Black and Clear Acrylic, this Geneva Glass Triple Globe Table Lamp, and this metal globe floor lamp.

From the pieces I’ve seen in-person (aka in store) the faux plants look pretty faux (so I’ll probably skip ‘em) and the knit pillows, while pretty, seemed to have a lot of loose/extra fabric, and I prefer a stuffed, taut throw pillow. One of the online reviewers agreed with me noting, “there’s next to no stuffing in the pillows and the quilted part is very loose and almost saggy.” So…skip the pillows.

Design-wise, what do you think of this new Project 62 collection? A little West Elm meets Anthro, no?

Spanx Arm Tights

SPANX-Arm-Tights

Somehow I’m on the SPANX email list (ok, I remember how I got there, founder Sara Blakely spoke at the Forbes Under 30 summit and offered us all a unique promo code if we signed up right then + there). So, I signed up. And while I don’t recall any of the emails coming to my primary inbox for a while, this week the subject line announcing their new invention, Tights…for Your Arms! graced my inbox and grabbed my attention.

Immediately judging the concept as “either the best or the worst thing ever” I had to see which of my suspicions was correct. Well, the product reviews aren’t rolling in yet, but I’m intrigued enough to give it a try. I wear regular tights multiple times per week in the winter, so arm tights may just be my new thing — a tool that allows sleeveless clothing items to be worn even in the dead of winter.

Spanx arm tights come in 10 colors, but I’m probably going to be boring and try the “Very Black” and “Cream Cable” options for starters. I’ll let you know what I think!

In other Spanx news (said literally no one ever), these Faux Leather Leggings have been well-received by Nordstrom shoppers along with the Bra-llelujah! Full Coverage Underwire Bra, which I can attest is worth the $$$.

ShopBop Sale [3 days only. Ends 9/29/2017]

ICYMI, the ShopBop sale is officially on! I find the site to be a bit of a black hole for me (not as easy to navigate as Nordstrom, so I end up poking around in a bunch of places until I find something that catches my eye).

But, if you’ve had your eye on something(s) from Tory Burch,  Kate Spade New York, Madewell, Gorjana, DVF, Vince… now’s the time to check out the selection and save big – specifically, 20% off orders up to $500 / 25% off orders over $500.
